About Me

I chose Hendersonville, NC to be my new home almost 20 years ago. Having lived in Charlotte, NC for 10 years, the move to the mountains of western North Carolina in 1994 was an easy transition for me and my family. My older son was away at College in Minnesota but has now moved to Hendersonville and works as a kitchen designer and is part owner of Factory Direct Cabinets Tile and More. My younger son was in high school at the time of our relocation to Hendersonville and has now graduated UNC. He lives in Georgia and has a degree in Computer Science. James and I have been married for 43 years. We are presently "empty nesters". We are Nana and Papa to three grand children. We are without a dog at the moment but have had Cocker Spaniels as family members until just recently.

When my husband and I relocated to Hendersonville, we each started new careers. James had held executive positions since graduating Auburn University in 1972 with a degree in Business. I attended Columbus State University. While living in Charlotte, NC, we owned an industrial scale business where I managed the Accounting Department. Having lived in Cleveland, Ohio as well as Wayzata Minnesota, I have experienced the stress of moving to a new location and settling in quickly. Today, my husband is a licensed residential and commercial General Contractor and has a wonderful reputation as a custom home builder concentrating mostly in the Flat Rock and Laurel Park areas of Henderson County.

Don't know anything else to say except I'm glad I had her as my agent!!!! Everything went smoothly despite what others told me could happen. Margret was on top of things, despite other agents being out of town and the owner out of the country. She is a good facilitator. I was very fortunate to learn that Margret was an Agent at Beverly Hanks, through her husband James. Margret is a fabulous and patient agent. She is extremely knowledgeable of the area and the different developments, as well as knowing many various agents. Margret responds quickly and is very professional. She provided all documents in a timely fashion and often went beyond what I expected. I would and have recommended her to friends, they also are quite impressed. In addition, Margret is delightful to work with and be in the company of. She's jovial and pleasant, honest and trustworthy. Not to mention she's very funny especially when she shares her experiences with you. Great stories!!!!! In conclusion, Margret is an exceptional real-estate agent.

We moved from Flat Rock shortly after the house went on the market. Mrs. Ayers kept us well informed about showings and other contacts, as well as keeping us up to date on the condition of the property. We were unable to return for the closing, but she took care of the details of the process such as dealing with house inspection issues, forwarding documentation requests, obtaining a settlement attorney, informing us about funds transfers, etc. We would gladly recommend her to anyone seeking a top notch sales agent.

Margaret did a great job for us and worked very hard to find a buyer...even to the extent of helping a potential buyer find a lender who could qualify him for a loan. She was very responsive and attentive to details. We would definitely recommend Margaret and felt we made a good decision. It was a pleasure working with her.

"We had the pleasure of working with Margaret Ayers in finding a new home in the Hendersonville area.   Margaret is extremely conscientious and worked on our behalf, seeking to always protect our interests.   She is knowledgeable about the Real Estate market in the Hendersonville area, has an amazing knowledge of construction, and is excellent in communicating her candid concerns.  In one instance she expressed apprehension in a home that after further research would have potentially been a terribly expensive downstream liability.   Words can not express her professionalism, patience and integrity.   We worked with her for over six months, and in that time we went full circle in our thinking about location, lifestyle and location.   She was always willing to assist us, made herself available on short notice and worked hard on our behalf.   We always felt she wanted what was best for us.   Should a need arise in the future for a realtor we would not consider using anyone else.   We highly recommend Margaret knowing she will work for you and your interests."   Clifford and RoseMary Stalter --Knoxville, TN   --  2012

Through five home purchases in the past 20 years, we have dealt with many people representing not only us but potential buyers.  Their level of efficiency could not compare with Margwaret's. Not only has she been instrumental in our relocating to Hendersonville, without her dedication to meet our needs we could not have made the move.  It took five months during which time she remained available to us and was a wonderful resource.  We are now in a a home very suited to us and we could not be happier...and we thank Margaret for this.  We have spoken to many people about her and hope that others, when in need of a realtor, will contact her. We could not be more satisfied.  We were referred to her by a couple she helped relocate here some eleven years ago.  They thought very highly of her and now we do also.   Judie and Bob Gerald -- Orlando, FL  --2012

Is there a best time of the year to buy a house?

When it comes to buying a home, there are pros and cons for each season. Generally, the best season to buy a home is in late summer or fall. There are still plenty of homes for sale, but without the intense competition found during spring. Sellers are also known for being a bit more flexible this time of the year. Zillow reports that the highest number of listings with at least one price reduction are found August–September. However, the deeper buyers venture into fall, the less choice is available. If you value choice, and you want more buyers competing for the home you are leaving, spring could be your best season. Ultimately, the best time to buy a home is when you’re financially ready to do so.
